Researchers at Aston University, a British research and educational institution based in Birmingham, are attempting to replicate the brain’s neural networks using 3D nanoprinting techniques. The project, called MESO-BRAIN, will use pluripotent stem cells generated from adult human cells.
Quadriplegics move hand exoskeletons using brain signals and eye movement, and not just in the lab
Researchers have published a paper demonstrating how they were able to create the first fully programmable and reprogrammable quantum computer in the world. Other quantum computers in existence at the moment can only run one type of operation.
Italian 3D printing company WASP has introduced the Maker Economy Starter Kit, a shipping container of 3D printing equipment for constructing houses. The kit includes six 3D printing systems, including the Big Delta’and DeltaWASP 3MT 3D printers, as well as tools and raw materials.
The Christchurch Regenerative Medicine and Tissue Engineering Group (CReaTE), a multidisciplinary research team at New Zealand’s University of Otago, is using 3D printing to develop new bioprinting techniques and biomaterials in order to repair damaged tissues following trauma or disease.
Implantable device could teach about brain development and disease
